Rapoport: QB Deshaun Watson trade talks intensifying

Deshaun Watson is still a Texan. There is a belief, a good chance, that's not the case by the time the Nov. 2 trade deadline rolls around, Ian Rapoport reported.

Rapoport said there are multiple teams interested, including the usual suspect: the Dolphins, Eagles and Panthers. The Panthers benched Sam Darnold during a loss against the Giants Sunday while the Eagles are still unsure about Jalen Hurts after falling to 2-5. The Dolphins have been linked to Watson pretty much from the start. Rapoport added a few other interesting notes about Watson: He's apparently in great shape and the thought is he could step right in and play. And, indications from the NFL are, if he's traded, he wouldn't be placed on the the commissioner's exemption list, meaning he could play immediately after the trade. While that status could change depending on how investigations play out, it's been one of the bigger questions involving Watson and a trade this year.
